of the fed. certainly fed jim bernanke and a big hawk about our deficit. good to have you on the program. >> thank you, maria. good to be with you. >> what are you expecting? do you think governor romney comes out swinging right off the bat? what do you think he is going to be pressured and asked about in terms of specifics on his economic plan? >> overall i don't expect a whole lot of specifics from either one. in the last several weeks the whole of the discussion has been on debate techniques and who's going to make the biggest gaffe. hopefully they'll get to the bottom of it. but i don't know if they'll get around to what i consider the biggest financial issues, the debt crisis that we have. and what are they going to do about it. and how do they relate to the federal reserve. say we can't have much to do with it. let the fed monetize the debt and go on and on? i have not heard from either one of them actually cutting something. so i'm afraid the important issue of the financial crisis that we're in the middle of is going to get worse. my prediction is they won't really deal with it t
the deficit or stick it to the middle class. that's the math. we can't afford to go down that road again. we can't afford to gut our investments in education or clean energy or research and technology. we can't afford to roll back regulations on wall street. or on big oil companies or insurance companies. we cannot afford to double down with the same top-down economic policy that is got us into this mess. that is not a plan to create jobs. that is not a plan to grow the economy. that is not changed. that is a relapse. we don't want to go back there. it didn't work, and we are not going back. we are going forward. i've got a different view about how we create jobs and prosperity. this government doesn't succeed when we only see the rich getting richer. we succeed when the middle class gets bigger. we grow our economy not from the top down, but from the middle out. we don't believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country, but we do believe in something called opportunity. we believe in a country where hard work pays off and where responsibilities were awarded and everybody is getti
a record deficit when he came into office. >> does it work to keep talking about what happened before? >> only to put in context of where he wants to take the country. we were handed a record debt. record deficit when we walked in because of two wars that weren't paid for, two tax cuts that weren't paid for. because of the economic crisis we had to take emergency action. he would do that same thing today. we saved millions of american families from the severe -- most severe economic crisis we've seen in our life times. now the president cut a trillion dollars and he has a plan to do more, a $4 trillion deficit reduction plan. the only person on that stage tonight with a real deficit reduction plan scored by the cbo, you know, scored by independent economists is barack obama. mitt romney, doesn't have a deficit reduction plan. he wants to spend $2 trillion more in defense, $5 trillion more in a tax cut won't tell us how you pay for, before you even start talking about deficit reduction. it's a joke to think mitt romney will actually take action to redaus the deficit. >> taxes, this wee
is for a long-term comprehensive bipartisan deficit reduction goal. in our opinion that deal needs to have the millennium voice. if not, there will not be a deal we believe. >>neil: would the group be if their 20's? >>guest: between 18 and 32. >>neil: you telling them when it comes to entitlements, especially, we don't start addressing this, there will be nothing for any of us? >>guest: right. we are trying to connect the issue to their lives. we saying you need to hear about this because sometimes it is hard to tell people, here is what will happen 40 years down the road. what we are telling them, we are talking about lost opportunity. to be honest, they are angry. they want to do something. >>neil: what what i amire about what you are trying to do, the commercial on an educated consumer is the best customer. young people don't realize this is saveable. a majority of young people assume they not going to get because the well will run dry, they can get if all age groups, all demographics start moving. how do you make that pitch? what do you say? >>guest: well, we are basically out there co
taxes, you have the deficit being dealt with in an insane way, at least being dealt with, i'm not so sure the markets are going to implode-- >> you don't think, you think the markets will whistle past this. >> at least they're going to say something is going on. at least they're doing something. >> and anyway, right. >> it's going to hurt the economy long-term no doubt. >> the it's the federal reserve behind the market. >> what about the notion that maybe if there were stronger leadership from the white house we wouldn't have to take such a ham-fisted approach. in other words, how come there can't be an elegant solution, i can't get my way, you can't get your way, let's just destroy it all. >> interestingly enough goes back to obamacare, i think it has to do with the incredit mri high-handed autocratic way that mr. obama shoved through obamacare and they're saying we're not going to cooperate at all. i think had there been a spirit of cooperation coming out of the white house with obamacare, all of this would not have happened. >> if i may-- >> adam. >> i think that's sort of of sill
. >> another hot topic, the deficit. >> it's now four years later, we still have trillion dollar defici deficits. >> $2.50 for every cut, we ask for a dollar of additional revenue paid for as i indicated earlier by asking those of us who have done very well in this country to contribute a little bit more to reduce the deficit. >> there were also some notable exchanges about jobs, health care, energy industry subsidies and regulation, all of these things got deeper than some people had been expecting. we'll talk about those topics with john harwood. but if you were watching, as they headed in a 70% -- >> down from 80 the day before. >> right now it's down to about 66% in trade obviously suggesting romney got a big boost. >> mini flash crash. >> among our political guests this morning ready to talk about the road to election today, arianna huffington will be our guest host. huffington "post" obviously has a left bent, but it was declaring romney won the debate. ken duberstein will join us, as well. >> i was reading some of your tweets last night, john, and i liked your tweet. i tell you w
raising the deficit or burden evening the middle class, it's math, it's arithmetic. jon: today it's back to the campaign trail. mr. obama in denver, and then to wisconsin. governor romney is in virginia where the most recent "real clear politics" average shows president obama leading with 47% of the vote, governor romney with 44. virginia has 13 electoral votes up for grabs. that's where john roberts is right now, live in fisher'sville, virginia. what is the event going on there today, john. >> country music star trace atkins will be joining governor romney and his running nature at 6:45 on stage. president obama won this state by six in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it f
, which deductions would you eliminate, let's be specific and how will you do that and reach deficit reduction, which programs will be cut? >> the question is, how do you get america back to work. what paul ryan said on your clip is, you flatten the base and increase -- excuse me, you increase the number -- reduce the number of deductions that are out there and you expand the base. that's typically what works. that can be done in a revenue neutral fashion that's what paul ryan has proposed and what that does is make america more competitive. mitt romney has been specific on how he would get america back to work and replace the failed policies of the president. andrea that's what this is about. the president's policies on job creation haven't gotten us back to work. 8% unemployment for 43 months. i mean what mitt romney said very specifically on job creation, is expanded trade by reducing the barriers, creating a better climate for america by keeping tax and regulatory policies in a better shape, energy. this president has been horrific we just lost 1200 coal jobs in virginia last wee
to avoid that before the end the year with the deficit reduction plan that deals with the expiring tax cuts and the $1 trillion cuts to defense and domestic programs. a new report out today says this could be a plan developing to help lawmakers move forward on it all. "new york times" reports that colorado democratic senator bennett and tennessee republican senator alexander are representing their parties and would in part set a deficit reduction target of $4 trillion over 10 years. congressional committee would do the work taking six to 12 months figuring out how to achieve that with tax increases and cuts to federal programs. if that fails, part two would then be an automatic deficit reduction structure in effect, likely similar to simpson-bowles. finally, lawmakers are likely under this framework, to vote to put off the tax increases and the automatic spending cuts physical some sometime in 2013. barring some action, here are examples of what would happen in 2013. if your income is $40,000 to $60,000, your taxes go up $2,000 next year. if you are in the top 20 percent with an income over
that adds to the deficit. i want to underline that. virtually everything you said about my tax plan is inaccurate. so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for 5i trillion tax cut. i won't put in a place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan. >> that's three different moments during this debate when mitt romney noticed the bump in the set for obama. what he's saying there is he's arguing against math. the idea that you can cut faxes 20%, can you tell taxes for everybody and it's deficit neutral and faye for it by closing unspecified loop moles and dealing with deductions. that is the romney position. it's up to bahama to make romney get specific about it to say okay. it's easy to say you deal with the deductions and it's easy to say it's deficit neutral and let's talk about the specific deductions and talk about the home interest deduction and health care deduction and the charitable giving deduction. these are things that people rely on and things that

cannot pay for his $5 trillion tax plan without blowing up the deficit or sticking it to the middle class. we can't afford to go down that road again. we can't afford another round of budget busting tax cuts for the wealthy. we can't afford to gut our stmes in education or n energy or research or technology. we can't afford to roll back regulations on wall street banks or oil companies or insuran comp we can't afford doubl down on the same topdown economic policies that t u intothis mess. that is not a jobs plan. it's not a plan for our ecomy. it's not a plan to strengthened middle cls. it is not change. it is a relapse. and we're not going to do it. we haveeen th we have tried that. we are not going back. moving forward. beuse i' got a different view. we have a different view about how to .[createbs and prosperi. this country doesn't succeed when only the rich get richer. we succeed when everybody has a shot, when the middle classs getting biggerwhen there are ladders of opportunity into the middle class. our economy does not grow from the top down, it grows from the middle out. that's
questions about his negotiations with the republicans on the financial and debt and deficit issues. and he was tuned in. he answered, he gave his side. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was looking down, it's almost like something else was deeply worrying him. now, i don't know that. the point is, you know, why would he be so out of it in clearly one of the most important political moments of his life? >> sean: it is a really good question. i think -- i think he was shocked because mitt romney looked him dead in the eye, was very deep in the facts. i mean, it was just the opposites of john mccain, in the mccain debate, obama was looking mccain in the eye and mccain looking down or out at the crowd. very different in terms of the body language. on substance, romney was very knowledgeable, across the board, every question and was willing to take the president on. i don't think he is used to that? >>
promises. you know, $5 trillion in cuts but it won't add to the deficit, trust me i'll tell you later. eat cake, lose weight. so i don't think he got the game changer he needed tonight. i do think the president was particularly strong, though, in getting governor romney to admit that he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program and i also believe the president was good in drawing the contrast between the two economic approaches, the two economic plans. governor romney believes that tax cuts for the wealthy grow jobs. most of us understand that those sorts of tax cuts are what grow deficits. they don't grow jobs. and president obama and his opportunity economy, i thought that exchange was lucid. i don't think it was a game changer tonight. the president handled himself with a more dignified reserve. when governor romney was tested, he got kind of testy. and i thought that the president maintained his cool throughout and did well. >> what about the president's cool and the president's dignified reserve as you put it, do you think he's going to have to change that style going forward
that the budget deficit for 2012 is officially $1.1 trillion. the good news is that that is $200 billion less than last year. we are still spending at least a trillion dollars per year more than we take in. this is the fourth straight year of trillion dollar deficits and of course, the national deficit is about $16 trillion. >> what is happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? [applause] it tells me that people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. megyn: that was then presidential candidate barack obama in 2007, suggesting that racism is a relief effort involved for the folks in hurricane katrina. this particular part of his offscreen comments, they got little to no coverage before they were posted on a daily caller.com. the president's deputy campaign manager is calling on the romney campaign to denounce the video, saying that the romney camp needs to stand up and say it was wrong for the daily caller to post the president's comments earlier in the week. take a listen. >> i think that allies to mitt romney are responsible and they should stand up and do the right thing and say tha
he cut the deficit in half in his first term. he's not been asked the simple basic questions by anybody. how did we get to -- >> except by univision. >> sean: one example. >> they haven't even hit him on the outright lie about libya. another anticipated obama argument, this crisis was caused by two wars and push tax cuts. that's so easily refuted. 2007, $161 billion deficit with two wars raging and bush tax cuts implemented in 2003. what romney really needs to do, though, is stress the urgency. none of this john mccain, obama will make a fine president. no. if obama is re-elected, this country is over as we know it. >> yeah. >> he needs to stay that in no uncertain terms. i say this, not because i'm a partisan, i'm scared to death of our lifetime earnings being in jeopardied, i'm scared to death of our liberty, of our prosperity. the american dream is gone. he doesn't believe in opportunity. he believes in expanding the welfare state and the dependence cycle. he believes in expanding obama phones and not putting people back to work and giving people human dignity. >> right. >
$86 million a day to the federal government. that's a lot of revenue that could help with deficit, deficit reduction and our debt structure. the third piece of that is we could become more energy secure as a nation. today we're less reliant on outside sources. new technologies have allowed us to produce all the energy we'll need right here at home. if we create policies to allow us to use americans to create american energy, it'll benefit us all. those are the things that could be done immediately. >> so how come the administration isn't doing it, if it's that obvious these jobs can be created soon? >> well, it's unfortunate because i think their limitations on the industry is driven by, in my view, extreme ideology. it's driven by an irresponsible view that we can switch from one energy form to the other overnight. somehow, we can take the 62% of our energy in the u.s., which happens to be oil and natural gas, and just flip a switch and turn that to wind mills or solar panels. all energy forms are important to us, but the reality is it took us 100 years in the united states to ge

not higher than that it's been 8% for how many months now? trillion dollar deficits for years now. what about those questions in. >> we are overcoming what was the worst recession since the great depression. we've mid a lot of progress. we are losing 800,000 jobs a month and obviously we've created more than 5 million jobs, but better off isn't good enough. we need to do more than that, we need to restore economic security for the middle class, that's why the president is invested in areas like education where we're double funding for college scholarships. we are on track to double renewable energy productions so we are creating the jobs of the future right here in america. he'll talk about both the progress we've made and layout a road map to create good-paying sustainable jobs to the middle class. bill: we are looking forward tonight. thank you for coming back here, ben. ben labolt from the obama team. good luck to you later tonight. andrea saul from the romney team, press secretary for mitt romney. good morning to you. i know you're looking forward to you tonight as well. >> good morning.
to start talking about the issues. they're going to start talking about the economy. why the deficit's been above $1 trillionow four years running, and maybe if the moderators get into it, what's happening in the middle east, and what they think they can do about it. i think that governor romney's plan's going to be to try to stick to the substance because i think the country knows we need a change. >> i'm only half joking about kicking out of the room. metaphorically, a lot of republicans want to see mitt romney do just that to the president. they want to see him verbally beat him up and make the points that you've made crystal clear and win the argument. but there's another argument that says that one of mitt romney's problems is he's not likeable enough and he may need to turn on the kind of easy ronald reagan charm which he deployed so successfully in debate. it's a fine line, isn't it, between being hard and aggressive and making a point, but also coming over as likeable. >> right. and piers, really, the way to deal with that, and i think this is true for any debate but especially one
, in terms of mitt romney surging, just remember how much of a deficit he had to make up. i mean, he was in some cases double digits behind the president and all those attributes and the president is still leading on them. we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up. that's what we got in mitt romney. what could the president have done differently? of course, we'll recalibrate and recalculate based on the mitt romney that showed up last night. we've got two more debates left. now we know what we're dealing with. we know that mitt romney will, in a split second, waulk away from the central policy of his entire economic plan because he knows it's bad politics. he has been campaigning on this $5 trillion tax cut since the beginning of the primaries. and last night he tried to walk away from it, because he knows he's going to have to tell the middle class that he's going to have to raise their taxes if he wants to pay for it. >> the $5 trillion cut, the president talked about
't he, with plenty of room to maneuver, why didn't he go after mitt romney on taxes, and deficits and the accounting line? just seemed that there were so many opportunities that were missed that night. >> i don't think it was the president's best night, but i think one of the other big things that happened that night was the -- astonishing walking away or effort to walk away by governor romney of some of the most -- some of the key proposals he's been making for 18 straight months. you know, on the central issue of taxes, he's been saying every day for 18 months that he wants a 20% cut in marginal tax rates and he'll figure out a way that won't increase the deficit. well there's only one way to make that happen, that is to raise the tax burden on middle income americans. the number on his tax cut is $5 trillion. because he's talking about a 20% cut in marginal rates, eliminating the alternative minimum tax, estate tax and other deductions, $480 billion a year, $5 trillion over ten years, that's the number. then he says, you know, every day for the last 18 months, i've been talking
focused heavily on domestic issues, the future of medicare and cutting the federal deficit. >> obamacare is on my list. i use that term with all respect. so i will get rid of that. i will stop the subsidy to pbs. pn i like pbs. >> that means you will gut our investments in schools and education. establishes the beginning. there are two more debates to go. >> governor of rally is working as a surrogate for the obama team, talking to reporters after the debate. back here at home, several college campuses have to debate what parties. -- watch parties. sheldon joins us live from johns hopkins university. >> we are about a month away from the election. a lot of voters we talked to seem to be passionate about both candidates. you'll remember from the 2008 election that college-aged voters were energized and excited headed into the election. based on the conversation we have had here, the same seems to be happening this year. >> the dining hall, it is never this fall. i think everyone is really excited for the election and the debate progressed more than seven it lasted as piled into the dining

the deficit or popular deductions. >> you're the master of the budget. so briefly let's go through the plan. the obama plan says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years. true? >> not in the least bit true. look, this just goes to show, if you for tur statics enough, they will confess enough to what you want them to say. >> how much would it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm not talking about the cut. we'll get to the deductions. but the cut in the tax rates. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all american tax rates by 20%. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deductions. >> that's where i'm going. >> i'm going to get to that in a second. >> lowering the tax base works and you can. >> let me just -- you haven't given me the math. >> look, i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go overall of the math. >> it would take too long to do the math? this isn't a pop quiz. it's a presidential election. even the conservatives are fed up with the lack of deta
is to try to turn his weaknesses on the economy and deficit to strengths. by roughing up romney on the idea he will hurt the middle class. >> he says he will cut the deficit, please. he wants $2 trillion in new defense spending that the pentagon didn't ask for. $5 trillion tax cut, future of the wealthy. >> reporter: the claim is complicated by the way biden framed the argument. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> obama officials today insisted that was not a gaffe, biden clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> republicans like rubio are off to the races. >> those happen to be the words that the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he is the best thing we've got going, guys. >> reporter: now denver has always been big for this president. in 2008 is where he launched the hope and change in front of the great columns of the democratic convention. 2009. this is where he signed the sti
would cut the deficit by $4 trillion. that estimate comes from a left-leaning center on budget and policy priorities. >> social security is structurally sound. >> according to the cbo, social security will run into financial trouble by 2030. the amount it pays out will exceed the money coming in. >> president obama accused mitt romney of proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. but the nonpartisan web site, fact check dot-org says that is not true. another questionable statement, obama said he would raise taxes only to the rates they were when bill clinton was president. but many high-income people would pay more than they did their then. >> that's not true. >> mostly fiction. >> another questionable -- >> if you are president, you owe the american people the truth. >> sean: joining me for an exclusive interview, the first since last night's showdown, presidential candidate mitt romney and congressman paul ryan. congressman ryan, i know you have to leave in a couple of minutes. governor, you went into last night's debate. there were a couple of polls that said that barack obama was a 2
the 2012 deficit had exceeded, now, $1.1 trillion. more than $1 trillion, four years in a row. >>guest: what a record. that means, and we have talked about this of with, four straight years of $1 trillion plus gifts. if you total them up over the four years it is $5 trillion. the first year of that i blame on president bush. the last three years have been president obama. don't forget, another one of the president's key campaign promises back in 2008, remember that? he said i will cut this deficit in half. $4 trillion he promised. talk about the bush tax cut expiring if biden is right and you increase taxes by $1 trillion how does that turn into jobs? >>guest: we will talk about what taxes they are talking about raising. they are talking about raising small business tacks from 35 to 41 or 42 percent. the capital gains tax is the capital we use to start businesses, that tax goes up from 15 percent to 24 percent. and you have estate taxes going up and dividend taxes going up. you have been in the financial market as long time, if you raise the taxes you know the impact it will have on in
in automatic spending cuts hits on january 1st. the plan includes reducing the deficit by about $4 trillion over ten years. an overhaul of the tax code and changes to medicare and social security. several tax cuts could also end if the cliff is not avoided, meaning about $3,500 more in taxes for the average household. >>> american university is warning students to be on alert after a string of incidents where a man has groped students near campus. there have been four reported incidents in the last week. the most recent one happened sunday night on massachusetts avenue. police say the suspect comes up from behind, grabs girls inappropriately, and then runs away. >> i normally feel really safe around here. i'm not in the city or anything. that's a little bit terrifying. >> something's got to be done. i mean, it's definitely uncalled for and not okay. >> au sent an e-mail to students to alert them about the attacks. the university is asking the students to walk in groups and only in well-lit areas. >> 6:06 right now. today marks the tenth anniversary of the sniper killing spree. the first att
some of the tax changes that he would specify with the ways he would trim the deficit. his campaign -- the president's campaign already signaled that. here is how his deputy campaign manager steffi cutter put it in a new video they put out today, brooke. >> mitt romney hasn't given us any specific details of his economic plans. so we can use tonight's debate to give us the details for first time ever, or we can spend 90 minutes doing what we know he's good at, attacking the president, distorting his own record, and avoiding any and all details of his plans for the country. >> now, obviously that's expectation setting and priming the media to already start looking for any specifics, weaknesses by romney in getting into the details. but it does mean that we should start looking for the president to push the governor on those kinds of issues. i do think the president has separate challenges, but this is what we should see the president get aggressive on tonight, brooke. >> okay. also we should point out, jessica, it is interesting timing, this date here, it coincides with a certain sig
